SFPD Rescues Canada Goose On Fulton Street

Earlier this week, officers from SFPD Richmond Station rescued a Canada goose that had stepped into traffic around Fulton and 6th Ave. 

The bird was taken in by San Francisco Animal Control, as reported yesterday via Twitter.

Currently, it's recovering under the auspices of the Peninsula Humane Society, where PHS spokesperson Buffy Tarbox said many injured birds from San Francisco end up.

Tarbox said the goose had no obvious fractures or other injuries, but that animals that wind up in disorienting situations (like stepping into traffic) can simply become overwhelmed.

The goose is swimming in PHS's waterfowl pond and resting up before being released in a couple of days to International Bird Rescue.

Wildlife-wary readers will recall other animal encounters in the Richmond, including a roving gang of attack raccoons, and most recently, fearless coyotes in the Presidio.
